  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: In net versus Canucks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/18) Rinne will start Thursday against Vancouver, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    The Preds' netminder bounced back nicely in his last start after being pulled in the one prior. In Vancouver, Rinne draws a club that's won three straight and averages 2.94 goals per game, 19th in the NHL. The two teams played seven days ago, with Vancouver prevailing 5-3 and Rinne allowing four goals on 25 shots.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Recovers from early error

    (12/12/18) Rinne allowed a goal on the first shot of the game but stopped the remaining 25 shots, earning a 3-1 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

    This was the opponent and the game that Rinne needed to get back on track. The Predators' defense did its job and kept the Senators at bay for most of the night, and Rinne played well to combine for a great effort. With a middling Vancouver attack up next, Rinne is a solid option for Thursday.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Named starter versus Senators

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/18) Rinne will start Tuesday's game against Ottawa, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

    Rinne has struggled in recent outings, getting pulled in his last start and posting a 2-3-0 record over his last five appearances. A matchup with the struggling Senators could help the Finnish netminder find his game. Ottawa has lost three of its last four games and failed to score more than two goals in all four contests.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Surprise loser in Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/7/18) Rinne was chased after two periods, having stopped just 21 of 25 shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

    The Predators are beat up in front of Rinne, but it was still surprising to see him struggle so mightily against a Canucks club that came in just 1-8-1 in its past 10 games. While Rinne's owners certainly won't be happy with this result, he's earned the benefit of the doubt considering he still sports a 12-5-1 record and sub-2.00 GAA for the season.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Starting in Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Rinne will guard the cage in Thursday's road game against the Canucks, NHL.com's Kevin Woodley reports.

    Rinne was razor sharp in his last start Monday against the Sabres, turning aside 21 of 22 shots en route to a tidy 2-1 victory. The Finnish netminder will look to stay dialed in and pick up a third straight win in a highly favorable road matchup with a struggling Canucks club that's gone 1-8-1 in its last 10 games.
